Call for Contributions: Peripheral Histories

The Peripheral Histories?  blog is a collaborative digital history project on the regions and peoples of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, which have often been perceived as geographically, politically or culturally ‘peripheral’. As our name suggests, we are interested in the shifting ways in which ‘peripherality’ has been constructed; in the changing status of and relations between ‘centres’ and ‘peripheries’ and the ways in which borderlands have been remade in particular historical circumstances.
